The Stillwater Historical Society is a non-profit community organization centered in southern Sussex County, New Jersey. It is the mission of the historical society to foster and promote an interest in Stillwater area history though education and preservation of family information, cemetery records, artifacts, sites, and structures, and to maintain a historical and genealogical library and museum.
The Stillwater Museum and Society headquarters are housed in a former school building that was built in 1842 and is located in the Village of Stillwater on Main Street. The museum contains and displays thousands of artifacts associated with the area's historic and prehistoric periods, and is open every Sunday afternoon between Memorial Day and Labor Day. The Historical Society holds open meetings on the second Thursday of every month at 7:30 pm, and presents a speakers' program by regional authors and specialists on a wide range of topics, including archaeology, local history, native plants, and music.
Every October, the Historical Society hosts a community Fall Fest featuring craft booths, food, hay rides, children's games, and live music. The 2016 Fall Fest will be held on Saturday, October 15 from 11:00am to 4:30pm. Stillwater Township is 15 miles from the Delaware Water Gap and 60 miles from the George Washington Bridge.
